NAM Annual Fund
While government agencies, foundations, and corporations fund many of the National Academy of Medicine’s (NAM) activities, they are not sufficient to sustain our vital programing and initiatives alone. The NAM depends on philanthropy from individuals to provide critical, unrestricted funding for the Academy’s ongoing role as a provider of unbiased, evidence-based advice to the nation on matters of health and health care. Your contribution to the NAM Annual Fund enables us to address urgent questions regarding health and health care, and communicate the answers in a timely manner to those who need them most.
The Harvey V. Fineberg Impact Fund
The Harvey V. Fineberg Impact Fund, named in honor of the seventh president of the Institute of Medicine, was established to confront the immense challenges of health care delivery, cost, research, outcomes, and education. Gifts to this fund will help to:
- Advance Initiatives—spearhead studies on controversial and complex issues that government and other institutions are not able or willing to support
- Create Partnerships—establish and sustain meaningful partnerships for action and innovative use of media to reach and educate the public about ways to protect and enhance their own health
- Communicate Findings—effectively translate and communicate our recommendations to populations who stand to benefit most
Gifts to the NAM endowment provide the organization with enduring capital to help anticipate and answer pressing questions about health and health care. Investment income from the endowment is used to initiate NAM activities in response to urgent health matters in the United States and abroad.
The Anniversary Fellows Program, created in 2005 to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the NAM, provides talented early career health science scholars with an opportunity to participate actively in the work of the NAM and to further their careers as future leaders in the field.
